Headsail reefpoints

Have to agree with Bob and Jeff; reefed jib is better for shape and results, but can be nasty to rig unless you get to it early. One benefit over roller-reefing is that slab-reefing helps lower the sail''s center of effort more, which is what you want as the breeze picks up in order to reduce rolling.
